light in darkness.

In the night, it is dark in my room.
I look over at my sleeping husband and sleeping baby and I realize that I can see them clearly.
The Lord spoke to me about this today.

If you are in a dark place, I still give you the ability to see clearly.
You may have to try a little harder. Focus a little longer.
But eventually you can see everything around you in perfect light.
After the darkness, always comes light. It's inevitable.
One follows the other. I created it that way for a purpose.
So embrace the darkness. Live there. Breathe there. Be present.
But don't settle there.
Light is coming.
Don't get lost in the darkness. Don't dwell for long.
Just open your eyes and focus on everything around you.
Light is coming.
It is coming.
Its coming soon.

"The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned."
Matthew 4:16
